Julep’s Nan – June 2013 It Girl

Nan from Julep’s June 2013 It Girl Box

Julep It Girl June 2013

Today I am sharing with you a color from Julep‘s June 2013 It Girl box called Nan.  As you can see in the photo above, the box also includes the colors Char, a navy creme, and Bess, a baby blue creme.  Char and Bess will be coming to you in separate posts at some time in the future.  Julep’s website describes Nan as a Nantucket red creme.  Since I am not familiar with “Nantucket red”, my first impression was a that of a dusty salmon color.  I will say that after googling the term Nantucket red, this is exactly what I see in the returned images.  So in the process of blogging about nails, I’ve added to my bank of trivial knowledge.  Two bird with one stone and whatnot.  But I digress…  🙂

However you describe it, the color was a great application and nicely pigmented, I didn’t have any streaking when applying the color.  These photos are two coats with a clear topcoat (China Glaze Fast Forward, if memory serves).

I really like Julep’s nail polish, and they usually give me pretty good wear.  Considering I type all day at work then type at night at home for school, blogging or social media, anything over 2-3 days without major chipping is pretty darn good for me.  lol  Does anyone else subscribe to Julep’s Maven boxes and, if so, what do you think?  I’ve been lucky and have had good experiences with them and their customer service.

Caroline by Julep is a deep vampy brick/ burgundy color that appears almost black in the bottle and on the nail in certain light, or a lack thereof. This is a lovely dark color, like so many I am drawn to recently.  In the right light, as I hope you can see from my photographs, it really comes to life with an amazing shimmery sparkle.  This one came in my Julep It Girl box for October(?), and it quickly became one I knew I would REALLY enjoy!  I’ve even noticed that there are a couple shades I have that are pretty close and will have to do a comparison before long with SquareHue‘s Dear John from the February box and Sinful Color‘s Rich at Heart.

Here’s a nice close-up of this color on the nail using a flash.  There is both a shimmer and an almost glittery sparkle that I really love about this color.
